“True, it’s no longer politically possible for governments not to stage rescues, but this is a snowballing problem of their own making. The past few decades of easy money created markets so large — nearing five times larger than the world economy — and so intertwined, that the failure of even a midsize bank risks global contagion.”

Ultimately, says Sharma, “government intervention eases the pain of crises but over time lowers productivity, economic growth and living standards.”
